Volunteering at the Women's


Volunteers at the Women’s contribute to creating exceptional experiences for women and their families, offering their skills and energy where and when it is needed most.

Volunteers complement clinical and support services with their knowledge, enthusiasm, empathy and generosity, keeping patients at the heart of everything we do.

We acknowledge that the experiences of people accessing healthcare are not always equitable, and the Women's Volunteer Program is committed to changing this. Together, we strive to create an environment that values diversity, promotes an inclusive culture and establishes a sense of belonging for all of our patients and visitors. 

All volunteer positions are currently filled and we are not currently accepting applications.

 

We are humbled by and grateful for the support from our community and our volunteers, and regularly review our volunteering needs based on the needs of our patients.

 

Please keep an eye on our social media accounts where we advertise any new opportunities, and check back later in 2024 for an update on our volunteer recruitment.

With many thanks again for your support.

Volunteer Program Charter and Strategic Directions

Volunteer Program Charter

 

The Volunteer Program will enhance the Women's clinical and

support services with the creative efforts of knowledgeable, empathetic and generous volunteers.

 

Volunteers will help create exceptional experiences for women and their families by offering their skills and energy where and when it is needed most, keeping patients at the heart of everything we do.

 

We acknowledge that the experiences of people accessing healthcare are not always equitable, and the Women's Volunteer Program is committed to changing this. Together, we strive to create an environment that values diversity, promotes an inclusive culture and establishes a sense of belonging for everyone in our community. 

 

As the needs of patients evolve, and new volunteer services emerge, we will work with the community to attract the right volunteer skills and expertise to diversify our support.

Alignment with the Women's Strategic Plan 2022-25

Creating exceptional experiences with our patients and consumers is fundamental to the provision of leading care. As our models of care evolve, we will continue to develop new ways to create the exceptional experiences for which we are known. The increasing diversity and variety of our patients and consumers means there are greater opportunities to improve the patient experience and make sure all women consistently experience a safe, respectful and seamless journey through our service.  

 

We are the best place to work, learn and contribute Our people are instrumental to the success of this plan and to ensuring we continue to provide safe and high quality care. Managing and responding to the day-to-day pressures and demands of a busy public hospital, while striving to create exceptional experiences with our patients and consumers, requires us to think differently about how we support our staff and organise our services. We need to be responsive in offering contemporary workforce models to attract, recruit, and retain the brightest and the best.
